LAMB OF GOD Drummer: Producer MACHINE Managed To Get Our 'Insane Music' Across

August 25, 2004

LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler recently spoke to The Herald-Dispatch about the group's participation in this year's Ozzfest as well as the band's upcoming album, "Ashes of the Wake".

According to Adler, "Ashes of the Wake", which includes appearances by MEGADETH's Chris Poland and TESTAMENT's Alex Skolnick, is better than the rest, although still blistering metal — no vast departure here.

"I think we are better prepared to make it a better record and to make exactly what we wanted to make," Adler said. "For the first time, everybody … is happy with it. Nobody's saying, 'If we only had one more day or one more knob turn.' "

Adler lays a lot of the credit at the fingers of the producer, Machine, who has produced records for such diverse acts as KING CRIMSON and PRODIGY.

"There are so many good metal producers out there, but we wanted to step outside the box and not get someone into the metal scene that could help us redefine how this music is sounding," Adler said. "You need different ears to hear different parts, and he blew us away about how to sonically get this insane music across." Read more.
